Publicado el “Manifesto of the Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshop” realizado por los principales expertos en MOOCs, y en el que participó el Profesor Carlos Delgado Kloos

The rapid emergence and adoption of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) has raised new questions and rekindled old debates in higher education. Academic leaders are concerned about educational quality, access to content, privacy protection for learner data, production costs and the proper relationship between MOOCs and residential instruction, among other matters. At the same time, these same leaders see opportunities for the scale of MOOCs to support learning: faculty interest in teaching innovation, better learner engagement through personalization, increased understanding of learner behavior through large-scale data analytics, wider access for continuing education learners and other nonresidential learners, and the possibility to enhance revenue or lower educational costs.

“Data is at the centre of the future knowledge economy and society”, the European Commission predicts (European Commission, 2014, p.4) and for the Big Data economy to flourish, “an adequate skills base” in form of a “sufficient number of domain experts” needs to be trained “to meet the strong demand in the labour market” (European Commission, 2014, p.6).

With demand soaring, Big Data Skills reel in the top salaries already today (Bednarz, 2014) with studies predicting a further increase in demand by 243% in the years up to 2017 (e-skills UK, 2013, p.6).
